Thoughts on Valentine's Day

My Valentine.
He's cute.  And fun.
I totally lucked out.

This morning (3:45 am to be exact), I sent him off to catch a plane.
Maybe not our most romantic Valentine's Day.
But when I remember that two years ago I didn't get to see him - or even talk to him - at all, I figure packing his socks and underwear is better than nothing!

Mother Nature gave me a beautiful Valentine today...  My daffodils are popping up!  It'll be a while before they do much more than that, and they'll probably be covered in snow again before they get to do anything exciting, but it's so nice to know that Spring is indeed on its way! 

Another gift from my friend Mother Nature (that's right, she's my friend today)...  It was over 60 degrees today!

It was also super windy.  As in, "blow the just-cleaned-up dog poop back all over the yard" windy.  You think I'm exagerating, but I'm not.  Until today, I never would have believed it, either.

Don't worry, though.  I cleaned it all back up.  Doesn't it just make you want a dog?

And then I sent the children out to play.  In case you were wondering what one does with a heavy winter coat that was most definitely needed yesterday - and will most definitely be needed tomorrow - but is most definitely not needed today...  You use it as a cape.  Just thought you might want to know that.

Thank goodness for Valentine's Day!  Our Halloween candy was almost gone.  The candy jar was dangerously close to empty.  But not anymore!  Thank you St. Valentine for being martyred and lending your name to a pagan holiday so we Christians can celebrate it in good conscience.  I truly appreciate the opportunity to refill the candy jar, especially with Easter coming so late this year.


Knock Knock
Who's there?
Stopwatch who?
Stopwatch-you're doin' and give me a smooch!

Yeah, I thought that was a good one, too.
